"I got to know Gastrolux pans whilst living (and cooking) in Switzerland, where I rapidly became convinced of their excellence. On my return to the UK I was delighted to find they were also available here. I couldn't wait to equip my new kitchen with these old friends. My only problem is to keep them out of the hands of my daughter, also a keen cook, who has severe "pan envy."
Sarah - Hitchin, Hertfordshire
"In 2012, Andy & I decided to move from gas to induction cooking which involved upgrading our cookware. We wanted to buy a range of cookware that would provide lasting non-stick; and we can honestly say that nothing has stuck yet on the biotan coating of our Gastrolux pots and pans - they are extremely good quality and very easy to clean; food residue slides off effortlessly. The ability to use the products in the oven and the option to buy many of the items with removable handles makes the range very versatile; I love creating a wholesome beef stew or a Chicken Cacciatore on the stove and then transferring it to the oven to cook for three hours. We also chose Gastrolux as we wanted something that looked great - we are cooking in an open plan kitchen where guests can watch us cooking; not only do the pans look good on the hob, we can easily take them to the dinner table and serve straight from them! We are extremely happy with our investment, and would easily recommend the Gastrolux range."

"We've had our Gastrolux Sauté pan since July 2000 and it has been excellent. Even after years of constant use the non-stick coating is in perfect condition and the pan still looks like new. We only replaced the handles after 13 years and even the customer service was fantastic. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an exceptionally good quality pan that lasts a lifetime."

"I changed to Gastrolux pans 3 years ago, after researching the safest pans to use from the point of view of toxic materials being added to food during cooking. I have been delighted with my set and use them daily. This pan has given stalwart service, been very easy to clean (even of things like porridge, scrambled egg) and still looks like new. I recommend Gastrolux pans to all my friends."
Reviewer: Phil Jenkins - Newport, South Wales
"The quality is excellent and even after ten years use the non-stick coating is still solid and very non-stick. The pan is quite heavy but this is an advantage when cooking sauces as they can gently simmer away for hours. A slow risotto cooks beautifully and straight-forward frying is a doddle! An excellent product!"

"Gastrolux Cookware is used on our demonstration stages for the Ludlow Food Festivals and is often commented on by the Michelin Chefs, food writers and demonstrators who find them very high quality, fantastic and easy to use and they often try and take them away with them - Don't worry, we don't let them get away!"

"The collection of Gastrolux pans in our staff kitchen are serving us well and have stood the test of time. We chose them for their non-toxic, non-stick coating and are very happy with the quality. They are sturdy, heat evenly and are easy to clean. Having used them here, many of our staff have chosen to purchase pans for their home use. Thank you for making this range easily available in the UK."

We have been using the new Gastrolux Biotan non-stick pans and the Brigade and I have been very impressed by the quality of the non-stick; it's like no other pan I have used. The thick base heats evenly and holds temperature well, which in turn means that we can control the heat far easier, especially when induction cooking. The removable handle is a great idea for stove to oven cooking and cooking omelettes are a joy, with literally no added fat needed.

I have been asked to be on a cooking channel on TV4 in preparation for the program we were all asked what was the one thing we could not do without in our kitchens. Without fail I said my Gastolux pan. This sounds corny but it is my right hand in the kitchen. I always know that it won’t fail me, no matter what challenge next comes up. I wanted to thank you for giving such a gift to be able to trust a pan to never fail me. Well done for coming up with such a genius piece of equipment!

Since buying my Gastrolux frying pan I have been overjoyed with it's ease of use and efficiency, and the detachable handle make storage so simple. I can cook without fat or oil and nothing sticks to it, even if overcooked. A quick swish with soapy water and rinse under the tap and it's as clean as a whistle. It performs exactly as I understood it would. First class.

I bough a set of Gastrolux pans, when I lived in Germany five years ago, they were the previous design with fixed handles and standard bases and served me absolutely brilliantly, really easy to cook with and very easy to clean. I have moved back to the UK and bought a house with a new fitted kitchen, including an induction hob, so have upgraded to the induction base pans, with detachable handles and they are even better than my first set. I recommend anyone even thinking of having an induction hob in the future, to buy the induction base pans now, as you can use them on a conventional hob for now and still use them on an induction hob in the future. Well worth the extra investment. Top marks Gastrolux, a great set of cookware.
